Luka Clark

My art is rooted in socio-political thought, exploring class control and social hierarchies. Through digital installations, I portray anti-capitalist ideas and working-class experiences using readymades, found footage, photography, and interviews. My work aims to bridge the disconnect between different classes, often fuelled by misinformation, by highlighting shared childhood experiences. The installation's centrepiece, a tent-like structure, symbolizes childhood security and reflects common behaviours like building pillow forts. Video projections on the sculpture serve as recollections of childhood, featuring interviews with people from the Wirral, my hometown. This connection between people and place emphasizes the innocence and freedom of childhood, often lost in a capitalist society. My artwork not only evokes nostalgia but also underscores the relevance of these themes today, encouraging reflection on social hierarchies and fostering connections to shared experiences and places.
